Exhibition of Tokyo Graphics
This event has ended.
When faced with the question of whether data-based art works have the same universal value as art pieces or not, most of us probably cannot help but feel that they do not. There remain some deeply-rooted problems to consider, such as the durability of printed works and the security of the original data from which a work was made. However, if we see things from the artist's point of view, we cannot deny the fact that works that have been printed using data output, like handmade works, are "products" that have come from somewhere within the artist.
There are many graphic artists who work in freehand before entering the data-processing stage. This exhibition questions what is relevant "now" for the Tokyo-based pioneers who work in a reality where people think graphics are no different from data-based works.
